    Personally, I think double clutching is great, It kinda seems like there would be something faster though, to downshift smoothly, or is this the best way? I am new to racing at a track and would just like to know. Thanks

    Yes, yes it is. Fast and the Furious is not a reference point.

    Dude, there is a good reason for double clutching. Not only does it save your driveline and tranny, but it also saves your syncros. Also, while entering a sharp turn at high speed, double clutching will provide a smoother entry instead of jerkin your car around.

    And what is tha "no lift shift?"

    personally i dont see the point in pressing the clutch twice when you could just push it hold it rev it to where you need it while you drop to your lower gear and then release the clutch. i mean correct me if im wrong

    Double clutching is only handy with a bad tranny. Doing it during a race is foolish if you dont have to.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure that it is good for racing, less jolting = no wipeout in a turn.
    Makes sense to me. Heel/toe is good too.

    Oh yeah, ALL of the old brittish sports cars and the like require double-clutching.
    They don't even have synchros.

    EXACTLY. Double clutching is absolutely useless and pointless on modern cars.

    Stop it.

    You know, something tells me that you have never even raced, at a track at least.
